House of Cards

For those of you that grew up in a big family, you always know that at any given time there are  several things going on in the home at once. That pretty much sums up my house. This afternoon I had 9 children running thru my halls. No, thats not a typo... you didn't read it wrong. The number NINE! 5 were mine and 4 were a friends. She had an appointment and I happily volunteered. I love her kids. They are so cute. Anyway back to my story. It was about 5 p.m. and I started cooking dinner. Emma had come back in from playing outside.  "Im hot mom and I don't want to play outside." So she sat at the table with the UNO cards and her creations began. Her goal was to build a huge house of cards. In between chopping onions and stirring garlic Jason and I watched. It was interesting to say the least. Soon Hannah came to join and tried her hand at it too. Before long everyone was watching. How big can the house get? AHHH who turned the air on? The vents are blowing right on the table. We were all holding our breaths!!! Kids imaginations are awesome! So, here are the pictures of her house of cards!!! Enjoy!

  1. Looks like so much fun! I have fond memories of building card houses! Me and my sister Shanna use to build card houses together before going to bed when I was young. I know exactly what you mean about having a crazy house with so many kids running around. Sometimes I miss living with all of my siblings. It was always chaos - but SO much fun!
